The First Fossil Fuel Free Community in The USA...!!!

A development that is employing a sterling roster of alternative energy strategies to cut its consumption fossil fuels and become completely self-sustainable.
Location: City of Arvada, Colorado

What do you need to know about this project?
1. The community is employing both active and passive solar energy collection measures to meet daytime heating and electrical energy needs. When the sun doesn’t shine, geothermal energy will be used to meet the energy needs of the community.
2. Rooftops will be outfitted with photovoltaic solar panels that will send their excess power to the grid for storage.
